Ever listen to a song on the radio and think you could do it better? Wish you had the inside scoop on how the music industry really works? Would you spend hours and hours of free time writing your own songs? What if you could record them in a world-class studio? Do you ever think about using your God-given musical talents and interests to make people think a little more? Answer these questions at the Contemporary Music Center (CMC).
This interdisciplinary off-campus study program provides a community for young musicians, engineers and aspiring music executives to plumb the depths of their creative souls and test the waters of a career in popular music. Designed as an artists' community, the program seeks to develop artists, technicians and music executives with a Christ-centered vision for music content, production and delivery. The mission of the CMC is to prepare students academically and creatively for potential careers in the music industry.
“The CMC is a dream come true, never did I think that my college education would encompass such fun, interesting, and relevant classes. I’m on my way to a psychology degree… with a music education included!”
Mark Preston, Gordon College
